    incline db
    flys
    overhead tricep extensions with ez-curl
    seated lever machine pushdowns (whatever htey're called) - http://www.safeairfitness.com/images/seated-tricep.png -- like that, sorta. plate loaded and the plates go in front of you.
    rope pushdowns

    today I took filmy's advice and did
    flat bb
    overhead tricep extensions
    incline db
    rope pushdowns
    flys
    lever machine pushdowns...

    lets just say the compound movements werent as great as they usually are, but it felt better. :coold:

    I've been doing my main compound movements first...Squat, Deadlifts, Bench, etc. Then doing supplemental lifts after. I've noticed my compounds keep getting stronger, but it seems like my supplemental lifts stay the same. Is this normal?

    I usually notice improvement on everything. Obviously I dont worry about stupid shit like curls and lateral raises though.

    Yeah I was doing a regular routine 3 day split and your body gets used to it, now trying a 6 day split with variations on the previous 3 days.

    Certainly chocks your body with the new variances and makes you question your overall strength ..

    I'm a computer nerd. So as long as I get a good 8 hours sleep, I've got the whole day to recover (only fingers get a workout) :) Alternating muscle groups for the rotating three(6) days helps. Though leg days can be interesting, as I tend to require them no mater what I do ;)


    WTF: Chocks? lol, Shocks is what I was looking for there .. dang learn to spell.
